According to Deadline, Diablo Cody (who was previously behind movies like Jennifer’s Body and Juno) and Heather Regnier (who previously worked on Veronica Mars) are writing the new show, while Maggie Kiley is directing it. Although it’s going to be based off of the original Cartoon Network animated series, it’s not going to tell the same story reimagined. Instead, it’s going to follow the characters years later! Yep, the outlet reported that Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup won’t be tiny pint-sized superheroes anymore, but instead, they’re going to be “disillusioned 20-somethings who resent having lost their childhood to crimefighting. Will they agree to reunite now that the world needs them more than ever?” We guess we’ll have to wait and see!

And now that they’re all grown up, the characters have reportedly changed a lot! Blossom, who we all knew as the spunky leader of the group, now has “repressed kiddie-superhero trauma, which has left her feeling anxious and reclusive. She aims to become a leader again — this time on her own terms.” As for Bubbles, who was the sweet one of the group, her “charming exterior belies an unexpected toughness and wit. She’s initially more interested in recapturing her fame than saving the world, but she just might surprise us and herself.” Finally, Buttercup, who was constantly rebelling in the original show, is “more sensitive than her tough exterior suggests. She has spent her adulthood trying to shed her Powerpuff Girl identity and live an anonymous life.”

Dove Cameron Manifested The Role
